So, we ask that you join us for a beautiful meal on the farm and open your hearts to the beautiful community that is APC. May 21st, give the gift of strength, home and kindness at Alameda Point Collaboratives Urban Farm to Table Luncheon.

Alameda Point Collaborative (APC) is a community of resilience. Opened in 1999 at the decommissioned naval base under title V in the McKinney-Vento act, APC is now in lease of the land for 59 years, from the city of Alameda. Settled on the former military base, APC uses the military housing and buildings to work to end homelessness by providing housing and services to formerly homeless families and individuals. To enter the community, APC residents must be displaced, and at least one head of household must live with a permanent disability. At APC, we recognize that solving homelessness requires much more than four walls and a roof. That is what makes APC so unique; residents are not just provided safe, stable, and permanent housing, but they can also access supportive services right in their community. Through the lens of trauma informed care, APC provides services like employment education and training, youth education and family therapy. The supportive community of APC is a strong one. It is a place where residents, and the community they have created, can progress and flourish.
